As we all eagerly await the arrival of Married at First Sight Season 17, last season’s standout, Nicole Woley, is spreading a little bit of hope. Fresh off a successful stint on the previous season, Nicole knows firsthand that love can indeed be found on this unique reality TV experiment. You might remember that Nicole and her husband Chris defied odds and naysayers to make their marriage work, which is why she is optimistic about the upcoming season.
The Season 17 trailer has already garnered mixed reviews, with viewers sharing their predictions and doubts about the future of the newly-matched couples. Nicole, however, has a different perspective and she’s not afraid to share it.
Nicole took to Instagram to comment on the skepticism surrounding the new season. She writes, “If I had a dollar for every person that said Chris and I wouldn’t be a good match, then I would be able to retire right now.” She goes on to mention that she and Chris are still going strong “over a year later and thriving better than anyone could have predicted.” Source: Nicole’s Instagram
Married at First Sight: What Do Past Seasons Really Tell Us?
There’s no denying that Married at First Sight has had its share of ups and downs. The show, now in its 17th season, takes the concept of arranged marriage to a whole new level by having experts match complete strangers who then meet for the first time at the altar. With so many failed marriages in past seasons, it’s no wonder viewers are skeptical about the show’s ability to create lasting relationships.
But Nicole Woley’s optimistic stance provides an interesting counterpoint. She’s among the few who believe that the upcoming season may indeed feature successful marriages, despite what the majority thinks. Nicole’s advice? Don’t be so quick to judge.
Social media reactions to the new season have been less than encouraging. Comments like “Some of these matches seem doomed” and “Why Oh why! Do I have no Faith in this season” flood the official Married at First Sight pages. Yet, amidst the skepticism, we also find a call for hope. One viewer chimed in, “Let’s hope these matches are better than the past several seasons. These are people’s lives being messed with.”
The Season 17 trailer itself revealed some intriguing drama, including a runaway bride and a jilted groom. But remember, drama does not always spell doom. If anything, previous seasons have shown that first impressions can be deceiving, and love can indeed blossom where it is least expected.
